As a way of building charitable spirits among future leaders, youth in Chiradzulu district have advised fellow young people to take a central role in assisting underprivileged people in society.
This has been said at Mkwanda St. Jude Catholic Church where youth at the church organized activities aimed at raising funds for various charitable works.
When speaking to Malawi24 after the event, chairperson for the youth group, George Kachale said time has come for the youth to be active in taking part in social responsibilities and development issues in their respective communities.
Kachale explained that only active and responsible youth can bring positive results for the country’s development.
He went on by asking other young people in the country to emulate what youth group at their church are doing.
“Through this event we are trying to teach young people to have a heart of helping others with what they have.
“We believe that on our own as young people, we have all possibilities of bringing changes to the world through our works,” explained Kachale.
He also revealed their plans of embarking on some entrepreneurial projects that will help to keep young people busy and prevent them from doing bad things.
Among others, the funds will help in constructing shelters for elderly people and in paying school fees for poor students in the district.
In the past, the group has been involved in different charitable works among them conducting regular donations to hospitals and prisons.
